CANASTOTA, N.Y. (AP) - Former heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, four-division world champion Erik Morales, and light middleweight champion Ronald Wright have been elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Voting was conducted by members of the Boxing Writers Association and a panel of international boxing historians.
